29 “The most important one,” answered Jesus, “is this: ‘Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. 30 Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ 31 The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these.”
32 “Well said, teacher,” the man replied. “You are right in saying that God is one and there is no other but him. 33 To love him with all your heart, with all your understanding and with all your strength, and to love your neighbor as yourself is more important than all burnt offerings and sacrifices.”
34 When Jesus saw that he had answered wisely, he said to him, “You are not far from the kingdom of God.”
Tobin Sorenson was arguably one of the most talented and bold climber's of his generation, and was also a bold Christian. He made the first ascent of the route to climber's right, "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Hand Jam," via a bold free solo. I thought it would be fitting for this route to be a memorial to Tobin's life and in its title, attempt to capture a part of what I believe motivated him; love for the Lord. The Greatest Commandment, Mark 12:30
It is possible to set up a top-rope on this route if you lead one of the routes to the right or left. Left is, "Private Pepper," 5.7, and right is, "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Hand Jam," 5.10b. When top-roping, the bulge tends to work the rope pretty hard so I recommend using a static rope or a rope of which you don't mind wearing the sheath. About 35 meters of rope should work fine.
If Tobin put this route up, there would probably be less bolts.
